I am bereft of ideas.
I have been for just over two years now, when I seem to have lost/misplaced/abandoned my muse. Ideas, impetus, momentum, any and all catalysts have been in short supply since then.
I couldn’t tell you without looking when the last time I updated my blog [Ed: I’ll guess summer 2013?]
I write sporadically if at all.
I’ve stopped attending meetups.
Can the spark be rekindled? I should say, “can A spark”, because THE spark would imply a reestablishment of the former status quo, which we all know is impossible. You can never return home.
But A spark – certainly, it’s possible. Is it something that one actively cultivates, looking for the Big Bang of creative rebirth? A muse, say. Or is it something that comes along slowly, a result of small habits, gainfully applied?
I’m not sure. I suppose it could be both, and the result of other mechanisms besides.
I do know I need it. Without seeming macabre, and in no way intending to signal something, I’ve felt sort of dead inside. Maybe inert is a better word. No spark, that’s what I’m getting at.
So my question for myself for today is – what will be the one thing I can do today to help me find that spark?
What would you do?
